KinderGym is Gymnastics Australia’s movement-based learning experience for young children and their caregivers.
Children need as many opportunities as possible to optimise brain development and increase physical potential before they go to school. KinderGym provides a safe environment for children to develop physical skills in a fun and playful way, at their own rate. Educational research tells us that children learn best through exploring and discovering their abilities through physical activity. Gymnastics Australia’s KinderGym program offers children a LaunchPad into fundamental movement; ensuring they can experience a wide range of movement activities and be encouraged to think, create, construct and solve problems with their own bodies. KinderGym programs assist in your child’s physical, social and cognitive development, as well as co-ordination and self-esteem.
KinderGym is the first of the three sequential programs within LaunchPad and is specifically designed for children aged between 0 – 5 years old.
An Accredited KinderGym Leader guides each program, ensuring that the equipment set-ups are safe, stimulating and provide endless movement opportunities for your child to play and learn. Parents/caregivers also benefit from sharing in their children’s fun and enjoyment. KinderGym allows parents to share rather than direct, allowing for real benefits from the child’s self-initiated play. Parents may also be interested in becoming KinderGym Leaders.
Gymnastics Australia’s KinderGym program has been founded on child development principles and is steered by the KinderGym Guiding Principles. It promotes the child as the key focal point and involves active participation of the child’s mother, father or carer. Engadine Kindergym classes are designed for pre schoolers aged 3-5 yrs. Due to the practical nature of the class, parents/guardians are required to be on hand to assist their child during the session.
